Beaux Arts Condo Developments In DC
The elegant Kalorama neighborhood in northwest DC is a coveted address with tree-lined streets, beautiful views, historical charm and stunning Beaux Arts architecture. Beaux-Arts architecture is a neoclassical architectural style that greatly influenced U.S. architecture from 1880 to 1920, mostly with decorative elements, deep cornices, flat roof, raised first story, grand entrances and staircases, and arched windows. Kalorama is home to several embassies and walking distance to the Woodley Park Metro on the Red Line. It’s close to Dupont Circle and Georgetown, and is a neighborhood where you can walk to many restaurants, shops, and a farmer’s market. Kalorama is convenient to the White House, the Kennedy Center, Reagan National Airport and Rock Creek Park with its walking paths and horse trails.
